On this date in history, 9/21/1998, I saw Aerosmith and Monster Magnet at Deer Creek. This was my 6th time seeing Aerosmith and they delivered an incredible performance like they did every time I saw them.
Monster Magnet were amazing, too…however, they were treated so rudely by the crowd, many of them so closed minded and stuck in their comfortable little box where the only music that matters is what they hear on the radio.
Consequently, I was in the minority as someone cheering as loudly as I could for Dave Wyndorf and his awesome band. I wish people listened with their ears instead of their preconceived notions. I certainly don’t blame Aerosmith.
I saw Deftones open for KIss one time and Kiss’s audience were just obnoxiously mean to Deftones…damn it, people…the headliner will play when the opening acts are done! Give ’em a break…they’re trying really hard to give you something to accentuate your concert experience! Rant over…but try to keep an open mind. You never know what cool bands you will discover when you least expect it…everyone starts somewhere!
